Russian floral egg, Fairies and Rudolph Day's



I'm here with another GDT make for the Chocolate Baroque DT blog and showcasing another of the fabulous Russian influenced stamps launched on Hochanda, these were exclusive to them initially but I believe you will now find them on the Chocolate Baroque web site as well. Further down are a few of the samples I made for Chocolate Baroque's Hochanda shows on Monday.

I decided to make an easel drawer card and fill it with some mini chocolate eggs, it's ages since I made one of these and was more than a little shocked to see how long ago it was when I did the tutorial for it here (should you fancy making one)..............where on earth did those seven years go ?


I digress, as usual you will find all the details form making this one over at the CB DT blog along with the link to the gorgeous Russian Floral Egg which I used.


The April Rudolph Day's kicked off yesterday over at Mo's blog and again I am all prepared. Mind you I may not be quite as keen on making Christmas cards in another month or so as the time has come to start preparing samples for the Christmas TV shows, every year they seem to start selling Christmas products a bit earlier than the previous year.

It's a pretty quick and simple card using an Inkylicios image stamped in black archival, some Pan Pastels for a little colour and snow glitter, then an aperture cut into a top panel which I embossed with a holly folder, a stamped sentiment and some cord and finished.

And a few of my Fairy samples as promised above.....................








My thanks as always for popping by today.
